If the error is due to an incompatibility between your settings and the equalisers (rather than a direct issue with the mpd_oled configuration) then what is happening next may be that after producing the ALSA error MPD has not restarted correctly, and so you can put good seetings into /etc/asound.conf but MPD does not read them and you end up with the same ALSA error. Try editing /etc/asound.conf to use your device (bypassing the equaliser) and then restart MPD with 'sudo systemctl restart mpd' and then click on MPD Config "SAVE". I don't know all the details of this, it is just something I have noticed.

Do you get the same error with SoX disabled?

If you are still unable to troubleshoot this, then please run the following commands and post the contents of report.txt

wget http://www.antiprism.com/misc/mpd_oled_moode_audio_copy_report
bash mpd_oled_moode_audio_copy_report > report.txt

Hi Adrian,
I created both the configuration (on rpi3 and on rpi4) from 2 scratch (7.1.0), without SoX and with mpd_oled only.
I am sure that you can reproduce it just starting with a clear uSD.
If you need I can do that (Please let me know) but, currently, I am working on another configuration.
Thanks and best regards,
Francesco

Hi Francesco

Thank you posting the report.

I was unable to reproduce the error you are seeing. I installed a copy of Moode 7.1 on a Pi 4 and enabled the Headphone jack as output
and checked I had audio. I then enabled the graphic equaliser and checked I had audio. I then ran my audio copy install script, but I no longer had audio, because the loopback device was now card 1 instead of the headphone jack. I reselected the headphone jack as output and I had audio again. I don't have an OLED attached, but I ran a copy of cava in a terminal and it was able to use the loopback device for input, so the audio copy script is working correctly.

In which case, if you made no other configuration changes to Moode, the error may lie with using HDMI with the audio copy configuration, but after the error you saw MPD was not restarted correctly and so you continued to see it with a good configuration.

Hello Adrian,
first of all I wish to say to you that the configuration without any additional DAC is not in my plan and I am not using it, but I am working on it for testing purposes only.
I have tried without HDMI and tried to mace changes, I have used the 

Quote:sudo systemctl restart mpd

command too, but any results. I got the music back after the unistall script.

So I decided to make some additional tests, from scratch but without any result.
I have tried the sequence you described on a rpi 4: same problem.
   
I have some questions:
1. When you mention "my audio copy install script": is it the "mpd_oled_moode_audio_copy_install" dated 21 march on your github issue #65? (Without the cava, mpd_oled)
2. The version of moOde image is "moode-r710-iso.img" 17 march dimension 4.362.240?
3. After the script, to see the loopback on the Output device, I had to reboot the system: did you?
4. I haven't configure anything on the moOde: still America/Detroit, etc.
5. I have tried to change the "Mixer type" to be sure the MPD restarts... no result.
6. If I disable the equalizer: it's ok, if I enable it back: again the message.

I have reinstalled it (from scratch) several time to be sure, before disturb you again, sorry.
If you like here you can find the image of the system...

Thanks and regards,
Francesco

Hi Francesco

1. Yes, mpd_oled_moode_audio_copy_install from the zip file.

2. I have the 7.1 image from that date. It is zipped and don't know the exact size of the image.

3. Yes. The audio copy install script also says to reboot.

4 My only changes were the audio device selection, enabling SSH and the song metafile, and changing the timezone (which are all necessary  for using mpd_oled). I didn't see eny errors at all (although I had to reselect the Headphone jack device after configuring the loopback device)

5. I left the mixer type on softvol


I don't know what is different or why you are seeing this error. However, I recommend that after you have seen the error message if you then change the ALSA configuration that you should immediately run 'sudo systemctl restart mpd' and then click  "SAVE" on the MPD Config page before you do anything else (although I cannot confirm that this is necessary).

Adrian.
